Think of Nipride RTU as "Ready to Use" Nitroprusside

You'll see a new nitroprusside formulation, Nipride RTU (NY-pryd AR-TEE-YOO), for lowering blood pressure.

Think of Nipride RTU as similar to Nitropress. Both are sodium nitroprusside...and have the same cost, dosing, and uses.

But be aware of their differences. Nipride RTU comes in 50 mg/100 mL bottles...and Nitropress comes in 50 mg/2 mL vials.
